"The directorate of education's guidelines gives parents a month to apply for refund. But here a school is starting admissions a month after others," says Sumit Vohra of admissionsnursery.com.
Declaration of the schedule doesn't mean the criteria have been made public. Some schools have even told parents to check with the school reception instead of posting the points distribution system online. The Indian School, however, has finalized it and pared the suggested criteria down to just three—distance (50 for those within 8km, 40 for those beyond 8km but between 12 and 20 points for those living beyond that); sibling (30 points) and first child (20).
Kulachi Hansraj, on the other hand has gone beyond the recommendations of the school bodies. In addition to distance, sibling, girl/first child and alumni, they also have categories like "sister concern school" (10 points) and "army/airforce/navy serviceman or martyrs" (10).
Even as schools gear up for admissions, the DoE is still deciding on issuing guidelines and what it will cover. They are also yet to decide on taking the matter to the Supreme Court. Social Jurist, the education lawyer-activist group, is, however, concerned about what the differing schedules will do to EWS admissions.
